Tennessee's largest county is also one of the "coolest." Shelby County is signing on today to the new "Cool Counties"
campaign, designed to help reduce global warming pollution, and lower county expenses. Dave Hamilton with the Sierra Club Global Warming & Energy Program says "Cool Counties" is an extension of the popular "Cool Cities" campaign, which has more than 300 cities signed on.

"Making the changes that are required to reduce emissions are also changes that make governments more efficient, make transportation fleets more efficient, and we spend less money on energy."

Shelby County gets credit for already having some energy efficiency policies in place, and those ideas will be shared with other counties interested in becoming "cool." Some of the nation's largest counties are signing the pledge today, representing more than 17 million people.

Hamilton adds that counties can pick up where city boundaries end.

"There are issues and considerations that need to be addressed on a regional level that a city itself just can't take care of -- most notably, transportation."
